3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
5 They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
In Part 1, we looked at how the mainstream media was reporting on the Wuhan virus versus the alternative media. The alternative media said from the beginning that the cases were being underreported. The mainstream media eventually reported the same thing. The alternative press reported that the virus was genetically engineered. This assertion is supported by scientific literature that is publicly available, which I cited in Part 1. Now, the mainstream media is reporting that scientists at Nankai University have discovered HIV carriers in the Wuhan virus genome, just as the IIT scientists did. Except the Chinese scientists do not imply this is the result of gene editing as the Indian scientists did, but rather a ‘mutation’. Sure.
So what does this all mean in terms of Bible prophecy. I believe a contagion or contagions similar to the Wuhan virus, but worse, will be connected to three of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in Revelation 6—the red horse, the black horse, and the pale horse. I recall Bible teacher Chuck Missler telling us over twenty years ago that the ‘beasts (Gk thireon) of the earth’ that kill people in Revelation 6:8 may be microbes from biological weapons. Any such weapons that are released during the tribulation period will be either directly or indirectly connected to the red horse. The rider on the black horse brings famine. Coincidentally, food shortages are one of the things the Wuhan virus is causing. The rider on the pale horse brings death to 1/4 of the world’s population, not just by beasts of the earth, but by weapons (biological?), hunger, and death. (Rev 6:8) If either the beasts of the earth or the sword (Gk rhomphaia) in Revelation 6:8 are indeed a contagion that kills billions, the corpses themselves would start to exacerbate the problem. This would explain why death is actually one of the causes of death in Revelation 6:8. But how else may a contagion similar to the Wuhan virus be connected to the apocalypse? In Revelation 13, John the apostle sees a beast which is a metaphor for New World Order (NWO). The traits of the beast provide clues that we can use to identify it:
Like a leopard (Stalks in the shadows then reveals itself at lightning speed.)
Feet of a bear (How the beast walks, MO like the Soviet Union police state.)
Mouth of a lion (The language of the New World Order is English.)
We are at a unique point in history that has seen the rise of globalism. Because of its incremental advance, this rise has escaped the attention of many people. Agencies like the World Health Organization (WHO) have emerged. The WHO has a great perception in the public eye, but perception is not reality. In light of the heavy-handed and bizarre police-state tactics that China has been using to contain the spread of the virus, like using butterfly nets to catch people, it is easy to see how the New World Order could likewise use the threat of a contagion to justify police-state tactics. The Wuhan virus may in fact be a beta test. Last October, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted a conference in which they conducted exercises to prepare for a worldwide coronavirus pandemic. The fictional media clips they produced as part of their exercises describe what has been happening with the Wuhan virus almost to a T. This is one of the many telltale signs of a false flag which I cited in Chapter IV of Dragon Slayer Jesus Christ:
“…simultaneous drills that train for the exact same scenario (in some cases not simultaneous, but a few weeks preceding)” (1)
If this sounds too far fetched, see the notes on Isaiah 28. China has a history of being used in various ways as a beta test site for the new world order. For example, the social-credit score system that will inevitably be connected to the mark of the beast is being beta tested in China. Apple is likewise assigning a ‘trust score’ to its users, although for the time being it is not being used. China is also a beta-test site for the cashless society (mark of the beast), where people have ditched their debit cards to pay using WeChat. A contagion serves a perfect excuse for the war on cash as the world transitions to a cashless society. China is already using it as such.
Again, concerning the black horse, a contagion serves as the perfect excuse for police-state tactics like forced inoculations and martial law. (The balances in hand of the rider represent the takeover of the legal system.) Then there is the effect that the Wuhan virus is having on the economy. The rider on the black horse brings an economic collapse where a measure of wheat is sold for a day’s wages. (Rev 6:6; Jesus told a parable where workers were paid a penny for a day’s wages.) Because of the interconnected nature of the global economy, with factories dependent on supply chains from other countries, it is easy to see how something like the Wuhan virus could crash the global economy. The Wuhan virus itself has already dealt a major blow to the markets and hurt the economy in other ways. Taking into consideration the convergence of all the other prophetic signs of our time mentioned in previous posts, the Wuhan virus looks to me like God’s megaphone telling us to get ready because He will be sending his Son back soon. In other words, if you have not yet received Christ as your personal Saviour, it is high time for you to do so. If you already have, this is no time to be lukewarm.
Having said all that, I am not the least bit worried about the New World Order or the Wuhan virus. 650,000 people die annually from influenza. Supposing that the number of reported deaths from the Wuhan virus is only ten percent of the real number, that would make around 30,000 deaths. The Wuhan virus appears to have similar transmission and mortality rates to the flu. (Granted, that could change as more is known about the Wuhan virus.) As far as the New World Order is concerned, Jesus taught that the church will be removed from the earth before the seven-year tribulation period:
26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
In both cases, the flood and the destruction of Sodom, it was business as usual right up until the judgment fell. In both cases, God got his people safely out of the way first. In addition to that, Jesus said He will come as a thief, when we least expect it. Therefore, the rapture can not take place at the end of the tribulation period (unless you count the second rapture for tribulation saints). If it did, everyone would expect it. Paul taught this same principle in his two letters to the Thessalonians. 1 Thessalonians emphasizes the rapture. 2 Thessalonians emphasizes the Second Coming:
1 Thessalonians 2 Thessalonians
Christ returns in the air Christ comes to the earth with his church (1:10)
for his church (4:13-18)
A sudden secret rapture that A crisis that is part of a predicted program
can occur at any time
Can occur today Can occur only after certain events happen (2)
On the other hand, the fact that the church will not go through the tribulation period in no way guarantees that we will not suffer persecutions, trials, or tribulations. China serves as a prime example of this. Before the Communists took over, the Christians in China were told that they did not need to worry because the church does not go through the great tribulation period. However, the Communists did take over, and the Chinese Christians found themselves faced with Mao Zedong’s reign of terror. Christians need to be salt and light to keep something like that from happening again. Although I’m not worried about the Wuhan virus itself, I do wonder how drastically it will affect policies, laws, and markets when all is said and done. As I consider all the different scenarios behind how and why this virus leaked in the first place, it occurs to me that it may in fact be a new world order attempt to take down President Trump. Think about it: Trump is the only one who has ever been interested in correcting the trade deficit problem with China. The carrot of going back to the good old days when China looted America (through high tariffs and intellectual property theft) may have been enough to convince Chairman Xi to go along with their plan and create the necessary hysteria to crash the markets. The economic pain that China needs to endure for such a plan would be offset by the long-term gain if the plan works. Since far more people die from the flu each year than are dying from the Wuhan virus, it stands to reason that all the hysteria is being whipped up as part of an agenda. In this respect, I believe the alternative press may be playing right into the trap set by the new world order. The alternative media has been reporting on the virus in a panic-like manner. I do not agree with their reporting in this respect. The sky is not falling. However, if they can can use the virus to crash the economy, they hurt Trump’s chances for reelection. If they succeed and place Sanders or Biden in the White House, then what they could not do with their fake Russiagate or their fake impeachment, they can do with the Wuhan virus. Mission accomplished. (This is only a theory, mind you. One of many possible scenarios.) Again, I’m not worried. God is in control. Read Psalm 2. It has a nice calming effect.
In closing, staying healthy is always a good idea. God gave us all one human machine to use for our stay here on earth. It makes sense to keep it in good condition. Here are a few techniques I use to boost my immune system:
10000 IU of Vitamin A, 1000 mg of C, 1000 IU of D, plus 50 mg of zinc per day
The Keto Diet helps guard against the flu
A 3-day water-only fast shocks your immune system
As much as you are able, eat only organic
Wash your hands
Finally, a word to the wise: When one starts to take Bible prophecy seriously, there is always the risk of another contagion known as rapturitis. Don’t quit your job. Don’t quit school. Jesus told us to occupy until He comes. That means we are to keep busy. Plan your life like you are going to grow old, like Christians have for the last two thousand years. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Father, we love You and we love your Son’s appearing. Give us the grace to occupy until He comes, but to live in earnest expectation. May your kingdom come, may your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
